#### Presentation Transcript

• Last Lecture

• Everything you need to know about dynamics of rotation

• Today

• Pendulums and Kinetic Energy of rotation

• Important Concepts

• Equations for angular motion are mostly identical to those for linear motion with the names of the variables changed.

• Kinetic energy of rotation adds a new term to the same energy equation, it does not add a new equation.

• Kinetic energy can be simply written as a linear term and a rotational term

### Important Reminders

• Note that tutors have both assigned and open sessions this week. See web for schedule

• Mastering Physics due tomorrow at 10pm.

• Experiment in class on Thursday.

• Note that if you do NOT do the necessary calculations in advance, there is a good chance that you will NOT be able to finish the experiment in time.

• Problems-solving in recitation this Friday.

• Pset due this Friday at 4:30pm.

### Right-Hand-Rule Review (by request)

• Except for the gyroscope, all 8.01L problems can be solved without using R-H-R, use CW/CCW instead.

• However, many problems in 8.02 require R-H-R

• The vector for any angular quantity (, , , , J) points along the axis with the direction given by:

• Fingers curl in direction of , , , , J, thumb points in the direction of the vector

• Cross-product Right-Hand-Rule: Fingers point along vector A, curl fingers to point along vector B, thumb points in direction C.

### Pendulums

• Simple pendulum: Small mass at the end of a string

• Period is where l is the length from the pivot to the center of the object.

• Physical pendulum: More complex object rotating about any pivot

• Period is where l is the distance from the pivot to the center of mass of the object, M is the total mass, and I is the moment of inertia around the pivot.

### Parallel Axis Theorum

• Very simple way to find moment of inertia for a large number of strange axis locations.

• I1 = Ic.m. + Md2 where M is the total mass.

### Kinetic Energy with Rotation

• Adds a new term not a new equation!

• Rotation around any fixed pivot:

• Moving and rotating:

### Everything you need to know for Linear & Rotational Dynamics

• This is true for anyfixed axis and for an axis through the center of mass, even if the object moves or accelerates.

• Rolling without slipping:

• Friction does NOT do work!

• Rolling with slipping:

• Friction does work, usually negative.

• Rarely solvable without using force and torque equations!
